The Cape Cod Canal 

WOMAN'S CLUB HEARS HISTORY OF CANAL 

Mr. Benjamin Harrison, speaker at the 
Mattapoisett Woman's Club's annual guest 
night, drew on his long experience as ma- 
rine traffic controller to tell the history of 
the Cape Cod Canal o Mr<> Harrison worked 
originally for the private company which 
dug the canal and operated it for years. He 
then worked for the U. S. Corps of Engi- 
neers when the government bought the canal 
and took over its operation. He is now re- 
tired from that job but very actively engaged 
in aerial photography „ He pilots his own 
plane and shoots photos out of a side dooro 
In this business., he has covered most of 
the world on various jobs. 

Mr. Harrison said that the Cape Cod Canal 
ranks as one of the major canals in the 
world in importance „ In World War II, he 
said, the canal was so vital that the out- 
come of the war surely was influenced by 
its existence and it may well have been the

factor that swung the war in favor of the 
U. S. and allies. The submarine pack of 
Hitler's Germany was so deadly to the ship- 
ment of suppj-ies along the coast of the 
United States that, without the Cape Cod 
Canal, the balance of power might have 
been tipped enough to lose the war. 

Miles Standish, only two years after the 
landing in Plymouth, traveled the coast to 
Sandwich, climbed the heights between 
Sandwich and Bourne, and was able to see 
the waters of Buzzards Bay. He saw the 
possibilities at once and proposed that a 
canal be dug, 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep, 
so that rowboats and canoes could travel 
between Plymouth and the tradings posts 
on Buzzards Bay with goods. Nothing was 
done about the idea. Governor Bradford, 
five years later, saw the same possibilities, 
Years later, a charter was given to one 
visionary and then another. Over the next 
three centuries, many surveys were made. 
At first, a lock canal was proposed because

of the strong tidal currents that surely would 
result from the different levels of tide in 
Buzzards Bay and on the Sandwich side. A 
sea level canal was first proposed in 1862o 
In 1880, a charter was granted to the Cape

charter under the name of Cape Cod and 
New York Canal Company. The charter 
called for a canal 25 feet deep at mean low 
tide and a minimum 100 foot width. A con- 
tract was let in March of 1907. The pro- 
ject had an estimated cost of $12,000,000.00, 
The work was done by dredge and much of 
the interior digging was done dry by power 
shovel and the material was removed by 
means of railroad dump cars. Mr. Harri- 
son showed some remarkable pictures of 
all stages of this mammoth construction. 
Work was begun on June 19, 1909 and the 
canal was open for vessels of limited draft 
on July 28, 1914. The full depth of 25 feet 
was obtained in May of 1916. The canal 
required the removal of about 15 million 
cubic yards of material and the total cost 
was about $16,131,000.00.. The owners 
charged toll for everything that went through 
the waterway. The minimum, according to 
Mr. Harrison, was $9. but, because the 
company had three different ways to compute 
the toll, the minimum was seldom paid. 
They determined the toll on length, on 
draft or on cargo, whichever came to the 
highest total. The New York boats that

passed through the canal each way dally 
paid a toll of $750. each or $1500.00 per 
day. The boatline strongly objected to 
the point of stopping use of the canal. 
The trip around the Cape was so hazardous 
that the boats could not get insurance so 
their rebellion lasted only one day. They 
returned to the run through the canal and 
paid the toll. They became a favorite spec- 
tator attraction as local people traveled to 
the canal nightly to see the brightly lit 
vessel pass through. During World War I 
the canal was taken over by the Federal 
Railroad Administration. After the war, the 
owner refused to take it back. The govern- 
ment offered 8 million dollars for it and 
was refused. It took 11 years of negotiation 
before the canal changed hands for $11, 
500,000.00. The Government runs the 
waterway as a toll free canal. The canal.

because it was so narrow, had been limited 
to one way traffic and, even at that, some 
spectacular accidents had occurred. The 
Government widened the channel from 100 
to 170 feet between 1932 and 1935. Con- 
struction of the present 540 wide channel 
was begun in 1935 and completed in 1940. 
The total length of the canal is 17.4 miles 
and the canal is now 32 feet deep at mean 
low water „ 

Mr. Harrison pointed out that it is possible 
to have a favorable tide and an unfavorable 
current. He said that boats with tows have 
actually been backed out of the canal with 
their engines straining to pull them ahead. 
There is one instance, he remembers, when 
a tug towing three barges turned them around

in the canal, such was the skill of some of 
the captains of those vessels. The army 
patrols the banks of the canal constantly 
to see that the traffic obeys the regulations. 
Sailboats may use their sails in the canal 
but must also be under power at all times. 
The patrols check them to see that they are 
kicking up a wake from their props. Piloting 
is a private enterprise and a vessel who 
hires a pilot pays about $100 for the trip 
through. Dredging is done annually by craft 
which operate like a giant vacuum cleaner. 
They suck up the silt which is swept into 
the channel by the current » The annual 
dredging removes about 350,000 cubic yards 
of materials. Mr. Harrison said that pre- 
vious to the widening the banks were con- 
tinually undermined and constantly falling 
into the waterway. Rip rap has solved this 
problem and the entire length of the canal 
is protected by these huge boulders which 
line both banks. 

Following Mr. Harrison's talk sandwiches, 
squares and cookies with coffee and tea 
were served by a large committee under the 
direction of Mrs., Victor Twiraga. 

Thank You! 

John Raphael, general chairman, and 
Robert Nunes, parade chairman, of the Tri- 
Town Parade on Veterans' Day, wish to 
extend their thanks to everyone who helped 
to make the parade a successful one„ They 
were very pleased that so many organi- 
zations and groups took part from Marion, 
Wareham and Mattapoisett. Those who 
worked on refreshments, on judging and 
on the organization and all those who turned 
out as spectators helped to make the parade 
the fine salute to our men in uniform that 
it was intended to be.

style, made from DROMEDARY Corn Muffin Mix and a sur- 
prise ingredient — spicy moist mincemeat. 

You may find after spooning the stuffing lightly into the 
turkey, to allow roorri for expansion, that there is stuffing left 
over. Save it to heat, covered with slices of leftover turkey.

WHITE GIFT CHRISTMAS PAGEANT 

On December 21st, the annual White Gift 
Christmas Pageant will take place at the 
Mattapoisett Congregational Church. An 
innovation this year, the Pilgrim Youth Fel- 
lowship will produce the program, under the 
direction of Fellowship advisors, Mr. and 
Mrs. Charles B. Dunn. Selected for pre- 
sentation is the pageant, "Our Greatest 
Gift", by B. Margaret Voss, This special 
Christmas play is unusual in that it doesn't 
merely dramatize the Nativity, but includes 
glimpses through history of the events that 
brought about Christianity. The cast num- 
bers fifty plus, and the entire Fellowship 
is involved in the production. Initial cast- 
ing took place at Sunday evening's meeting. 
Casting will continue this week, and re- 
hearsals will begin at 6:30 P.M. November

Contest" , held at Weymouth High School 
Saturday, November 15th. Susan, a senior 
at Old Rochester Regional High School, 
was in competition with 20 girls represent- 
ing 10 different schools. Susan plans to 
attend college next year and major in Fashion 
Design. 

"The Make It Yourself With Wool Contest" 
is held annually by "The Co-ordinating 
Council for Wool Promotion in the United 
States". The main purpose of the contest 
it to focus attention on the beauty and versa- 
tility of American Wool. Susan' s outfit 
was a full length coat made of 100% blue- 
grey wool, trimmed in dark grey astrakhan 
with black buttons. The double breasted 
coat gave a Russian appearance with very 
full sleeves and an astrakhan collar, cuffs 
and facings. The outfit was accented with 
stovepipe slacks, hat and muff of the same 
wool and astrakhan trim. Susan altered a 
basic pattern adding her original design. 

Susan received two yards of Pendleton 
wool plus the honor of being able to com-

^^The Crucible" 

THE CRUCIBLE 

Drama Club in Witch hunt 

The Looking Glass Players of Old Rochester 
picked a trying vehicle for their efforts on 
Friday, November 21st, "The Crucible". 
The accepted method of doing-in a witch 
is to hammer a stake through its heart. 
Playwright Arthur Miller has seized upon 
this proven method to drive his points with 
an audience. Certainly no one left with 
the idea that witch hunts are fun. .

With this limitation in mind, the actors 
and actresses of the drama club did an ex- 
cellent job restricted only by the sustained 
gloom of this oppressive drama. 

The play picks out a period of Colonial 
fanaticism in Salem of 1692. The story is 
about four children of Salem, who discovered 
in a forbidden activity, dancing, cover 
their deed by falling into a faint. One of 
the girls continues her faint until her father, 
the clergyman of the village, becomes 
alarmed enough to send for a superior in 
the church o He arrives and is influenced 
by the dire accusations of a Thomas and 
MrSo Putnam who have lost several chil- 
dren. The Putnam s charge witchcraft as the 
case of Revo Samuel Parris's daughter's ail- 
ment o John Proctor, a farmer, has been 
indiscreet with a young Abigail Williams 
who has been assisting his ailing wife in 
their household. She takes the opportunity 
to join in the group of young fakers who are 
pretending to be victims of witches. In this 
way she seeks to eliminate the wife of John 
Proctor by having her hanged as a witch. 
The play covers the trial and conviction of 
the principles, the remorse of the clergy 
as they realize the evil that they have

the players into the dungeon and finally

A talented group, directed by Nancylee 
Gaucher, did some fine work in developing 
the characters in the play. James Lawrence 
was excellent as John Proctor, and Naomi 
Arenberg was equally effective in the part 
of Abigail o David Sullivan filled the role 
of Rev. John Hale well and did a nice job 
of changing attitude as his character be- 
comes aware of the horror that has been un- 
leashed. Richard Helfand, Jacquie Robb, 
Scott Atkinson, and all of the other mem- 
bers of this cast did an outstanding job 
with a most difficult playo Others in the 
cast were Susan Wing, Jeffrey Dunn,. Elaine

Also, Gail Roberts, Kim Randall, Lisa

ART CENTER PLAYERS TO PRESENT PLAY 

The Marion Art Center Players will present 
"Under Milk Wood", a lyrical play by Dy- 
lan Thomas on the first two weekends in 
December. The play, Thomas' last com- 
pleted work, is a story in which the town 
is the central character and the plot con- 
cerns a day in the life of the town. Os- 
tensibly a small Welsh fishing village, 
Llarreggub (the Town) could easily be seen 
as an accurate counterpart to one of our
